Ciasulli Gets His First College Win on 2nd Try

Freshman redshirt Matt Ciasulli bounced back from an opening-night loss to record a first-period fall over Pittsburgh's Adam Curry as Lehigh manhandled the Panthers 31-9 before a crowd of 1,813 at Leeman-Turner Arena at Grace Hall. "I was pumped to get out on the mat again," Ciasulli said. Lehigh, ranked No. 2 nationally by Amateur Wrestling News and third by InterMat Wrestling, won eight of 10 bouts against the overmatched Panthers. "We were much more relaxed tonight," Lehigh coach Greg Strobel. "The anxiety of opening night was gone and it showed on the mat. We came out with a purpose and that was to get the job done."
